  • Antonidas' triggered effect activates before the triggering spell takes effect.
  • If you have Archmage Antonidas on the board and cast  Soulfire, you will first obtain a  Fireball from Antonidas before then discarding a random card. Thus it is possible that the Soulfire will cause you to discard the Fireball just gained from Antonidas.

Antonidas was a character in Warcraft III, seen briefly a few times before eventually being killed by Arthas when Arthas sieged Dalaran for the Scourge. Antonidas was well known and respected in Lordaeron as one of its most elder and powerful of mages. He also trained  Jaina Proudmoore. She was his newest, and most promising, student before he met his demise. He also knew Kel'Thuzad, a mage that eventually forsook the city to study forbidden necromancy before the Scourge was formed. Towards his end, he used his powerful magic to construct an anti Undead aura, hoping it would finally stop the Scourge invasion by protecting Dalaran. While the magical aura worked in practice, it was not enough and still they took the city. The magic was then lost when Antonidas and the order were slaughtered.

Antonidas was but a mere boy when he became an apprentice to one of the Kirin Tor. He was a tenacious learner, pouring over books in the magical libraries of Dalaran. After only a few short years of studying under the sect, Antonidas had outclassed his peers and earned their admiration, as well as the respect of his elders. At the age of 12, Antonidas' thesis, "The Ramifications of refined Reverse Time Travel Phenomena into Quantifiable Magical Practice", earned him the Kirin Tor Sash of Supreme Acumen, the youngest ever to receive the award. Shortly thereafter the Ruling Council offered him official placement in the Kirin Tor Advanced Research and Illumination Sect, also the youngest to receive an official invitation. As the mage grew older, he continued to learn and hone his abilities. His natural talent for defensive magic and wisdom beyond his years made Antonidas an ideal candidate for a position on the Council of Six, which he eventually attained. Antonidas proved not only wise and fair, but infinitely regimented in goal to become more knowledgeable. He quickly became one of the dominant voices of Dalaran.

"Archmage Antonidas, Grand Magus of the Kirin Tor. The great city of Dalaran stands once again - a testament to the tenacity and will of its greatest son. Your sacrifices will not have been in vain dearest friend. With Love and Honor." - Jaina Proudmoore
